Usually, if you want to watch a married couple tear each other apart in front of company, you have to wait until your family’s Thanksgiving party. In 2020, however, you can get your dose of scathing domestic venom come April 9, the day the upcoming Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? revival, starring Laurie Metcalf and Eddie Izzard, opens on Broadway.
Quantico actor Russell Tovey and Darkest Hour actress Patsy Ferran will co-star in the Edward Albee play as Nick and Honey, a young couple who makes the critical mistake of accepting an invitation for a drink at Martha and George’s place. Joe Mantello, who, along with leading lady Metcalf, won a Tony for 2018’s Three Tall Women, will direct. Izzard also received a Tony nom for 2001’s revival of A Day in the Death of Joe Egg, because if you’re paying good money to see two spouses wreak havoc on each other, it had better be Tony-caliber havoc.
